This is the author of the Tuttle Family Genealogy,
published in 1883. Could you add that to his information?

Do you have reference to prove that Oliver Brown was born in Huntington? His death entry is in the Finch Family Bible of Jonathan Finch who married Sarah Brown, Oliver's sister. They family was a Greenwich, CT family. The death date in the Bible matches your memorial. Thank you.

If Cathy is not a member of your family I would really appreciate having her transferred to me. We went to school together and I have set up a virtual memorial for some of our classmates. Thanks for your consideration.

Howard Family of Leonardtown, MD
David – What an amazing amount of work and wealth of information! I am hoping you may be able to assist me in my search for my great (x’s 4) grandfather’s family. Stephen Howard lived with his family in St. Mary’s County, Leonardtown, MD. In 1776 he enlisted in the 1st Maryland Regiment, and in 1780 was wounded at the Battle of Camden, then taken prisoner and held aboard the prison ship “Elizabeth", then pressed into service on a man-of-war and taken to Kingston, Jamaica. Later he was sent to Canada, then onto Fort Loyal, on Dutchman’s Point in North Hero, VT (the last fort the British held onto in the U.S.) where after 16 years held as a prisoner of war, he was finally able to escape to freedom. I have been trying to find who his parents were and how they came to be in Maryland, (did they arrive on the Ark or the Dove?) Any leads would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much for the correction. I wish I had more ancestors to connect with him. This is one of the few of the ancestors from Baltimore Maryland that have appeared in Find a Grave. I'm so grateful for it too. If I find more, I'll let you know. Thanks.

RE: Mary Green
Thanks!! I'm about 2 hours away, so I certainly appreciate that. I do have a question for you. My great grandmother's father was Enoch Richard Evans. I saw an article from 1905 that said he was a noted handball player in Leonardtown "in the alley behind Tubman's Store." I was at the Historical Society there back in about 2004 and there was a woman there in her 90s who did not remember that store. I'd love to find out the location of that store and of course that alley if it still exists there in Leonardtown. I've done a few web searches to no avail. If you've heard of it or know where I can find that answer I'd appreciate it. BTW - Mary's husband's family is originally from Sayville, Long Island...

OH my goodness David!
Requas are near and dear to my heart! My grandmother was a Requa. Delighted to meet a Requa relative! Hello there Cousin!

Hugs of appreciation for the transfers. I get them all linked up and have the appropriate dates and information with them.

I am perusing the baptism records trying to find the information on this William. I did find the baptismal records for three sisters but could not locate his. I wonder if he lived for less than a day and was not baptized.

Thanks again my new found cousin!

RE: Vincent Miedzinski
I did some research and found his name is William Vincent Miedzinski born 1869 in Poland, Immigration about 1885 to Baltimore, Maryland. 1910 Census lists his occupation as Oysterman. Naturalization was 01 MAY 1900. He died 14 MAY 1970. Married Frances Mary Pawloska (Pawloski) on 03 JUN 1898. Frances was born 26 OCT 1882 in Baltimore, Maryland and died 18 MAY 1953 in Baltimore, Maryland.

After their marriage, they moved to Kent County, Maryland and lived in a town called Rock Hall. They had 14 children. 6 were born in Rock Hall. In 1909 they moved to St. Mary's County, where the rest of their children were born.

Vincent was the youngest of several children, (possibly 9.) He had a sister named Ursula, a brother name Pete and may of had a brother named Joseph.

I suggested corrections to Peter and Thomas' Memorials, to link their parents.

Agnes I Clarke Wife F 28 Maryland

Her 1st husband is Joseph Aubrey Clarke, Sr. There is a Joseph A. Clarke in the same cemetery as her. Based on the 1930 Census, he is her husband. I created and manage his memorial and have now linked them.

RE: Agnes Clarke Shifflett
According to Mary Eva's obituary, she is the daughter of James Wilson Copsey and Cordelia Greenwell, and was the wife of Joseph Michael Miedzinski.

I did some research and found Agnes in the 1930 Census, listed as daughter in law, residing in Hillville, St. Mary's, Maryland.

I continued to dig and found both Mary Eva and Agnes in the 1920 Census with their father in Hillville, St. Mary's, Maryland.

James Wilsen Copsey Head M 37 Maryland
Minnie Copsey Wife F 34 Maryland
Mary Eva Copsey Daughter F 12 Maryland
William Loyd Copsey Son M 9 Maryland
Agnes Iver Copsey Daughter F 7 Maryland

So, it looks as though Mary Eva and Agnes were both married twice.
